Most Expensive Food Dishes In The World

Curious to know what the most expensive food dishes in the world are? Chefs and restaurant owners around the world create original dining experiences for those who want a unique experience. Like spending over $10,000 on a pizza or $1,000 on an ice cream sundae. Let's see what the most expensive food dishes in the world are!

If you're traveling to Sri Lanka and want a fancied-up dessert, this may just be the rich treat for you.

The Fortress Resort and Spa in Galle, Sri Lanka, claims to sell the world's most expensive dessert at a base price of $14,500 U.S. This unique culinary creation needs 24 hours advance notification to order.

The Indulgence features a stilt fisherman handmade from chocolate. The base is an Italian cassata flavored with Baileys Irish Cream and served with a mango and pomegranate compote and a Champagne sabayon sauce adorned with edible gold leaf.

The finishing touch is an 80-karat aquamarine stone sitting on the fisherman's chocolate stilt!

If all of that's not enough, the Indulgence is served with handmade, studio-flared glass cutlery exclusively designed for The Fortress by Glass Studio.


Ranked by Luxatic as the most expensive pizza in the world, there's no chance you'll find a slice quite like this at your local pizza place. According to Renato Viola's website, the pizza originated in Salerno, Italy, and is prepared exclusively by its inventor, Renato Viola, by special order!

This pizza is topped with mozzarella di bufala, lobster and caviar all flown in from all different parts of the world!

No regular drink will do this pizza justice. The Louiss XIII is paired with, not one, but three types of alcohol: cognac, champagne, and brandy. More specifically, Remy Martin Cognac Louis XIII, Champagne Krug Clos Du Mesnil 1995, and Cardenal Mendoza Sanchez Charter Real Romate Finos. This is a crucial part of the meal, especially since the pizza shares a name with the cognac it is served with!


There are plenty of super expensive burgers out there, but the most expensive burger on Earth, however, can be found in Las Vegas, at Fleur, located inside the Mandalay Bay Casino for $5,000.

French chef Hubert Keller uses the most expensive meat to flavor this burger, wagyu beef (about $100 per pound). The luxury continues with a slab of seared foie gras and ample truffle shavings (about $1,500 per pound). As well as a bottle of 1995 Chateau Petrus from Bordeaux, one of the most prized and expensive wines known to man.


The Golden Opulence Sundae at New York City's Serendipity3 restaurant lives up to its name: three scoops of Tahitian vanilla ice cream are topped with 23-karat edible gold leaf, spoonfuls of Grand Passion dessert caviar, a handcrafted gilded sugar orchid and Amedei Porcelana and Chuao chocolate, made from rare Venezuelan beans. Whew!

This dish is served in a Baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet and must be ordered at least 48 hours in advance to prepare the exotic ingredients.

At $1,000, it's far more extravagant than your regular ice cream scoop on a cone!


Chef Marc Guibert of Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in England's Lake District makes this high-end chocolate, gold, caviar, and 2-karat diamond pudding. It's served in an edible replica of a Faberge egg and aims to be the world's most expensive dessert!
